Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology celebrates its tenth anniversary at their annual symposium with the theme of Precision Medicine. Registration is now open for attendees and poster registration. All nanobio related research topics are encouraged to submit poster titles.
The symposium will take place at Owens Auditorium (located between CRB I and CRB II at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine on Friday, April 29. Talks begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 12:30. A poster session in the auditorium lobby and corridor will occur from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Prizes will be offered for the top poster presenters, and the first 60 posters registrants will be invited to attend a special luncheon at 12:30.
To register to attend or to register a poster title for the symposium, click here. All nanobio related topics and students from all disciplines and departments are invited to participate. The symposium is free and open to the Johns Hopkins University community and select other academic institutions. A registration fee may apply to other attendees.
NOTE: Posters should be 3′ by 4′ or no larger than 4′ by 4′ in size and should be in place by 1:15 p.m.. Poster presenters will find out where their poster is to be displayed on the day of the symposium.
According to the National Institutes of Health:
Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. While some advances in precision medicine have been made, the practice is not currently in use for most diseases. That’s why on January 20, 2015, President Obama announced the Precision Medicine Initiative® (PMI) in his State of the Union address. Through advances in research, technology and policies that empower patients, the PMI will enable a new era of medicine in which researchers, providers and patients work together to develop individualized care.
The AGENDA for the day is as follows:
- Continental Breakfast 8:30 – 9:00 a.m.

Help INBT celebrate 10 years of fostering and facilitating collaborative multidisciplinary research across all divisions and departments of the University.
Launched in 2006, INBT focuses its efforts in research on the basic biological sciences, the clinical sciences, and public health. In the basic biological sciences, INBT supports research exploiting nanoscience to advance our understanding of cellular and molecular dynamics at the molecular level. In the clinical sciences, INBT supports research to develop novel methods for diagnostics and therapeutics. In public health, INBT supports research to understand the potential impact of nanoscience and nanotechnology on health and the environment, as well as on using nanoscience to solve environmental problems.
